2019 Contracts and List Details



Recommended Posts

The club has officially locked in our list:  "The Demons will have 39 primary listed players and six rookies for the upcoming season"  Demon List

The updated player details are:

I've assumed Corey Maynard and Kade Chandler contracts are for one year.  If anyone has any other info or corrections to above please advise.

Its great to see so many of our young guns reach the 50-100 game range.  Bodes well for us as they can only improve with more games under their belt and cohesion from playing together.

Mods, could you please unpin the 2018 thread and replace it with this.  Thanks.

The Roar has produced player list analysis:  Team Profiles

The Average isn't the best measure;  I prefer The Mean Median.  Nonetheless, the Roar tables are a good indicator of each team.

I was a bit surprised to see Collingwood so high in the age profiles. 

The likes of Lewis and Jones are raising our age profile somewhat.

For us to finish 4th in 2018 when on average age we were 9th and average experience we were 12th shows what a mighty effort it was by the club. 

An interesting comment from the article:  "Overall the numbers hint at a few possible conclusions, one being that putting heavy 2019 expectations on the likes of Melbourne, Fremantle and Essendon because of their notable trade period recruits might be a little premature.

Of these three sides, only one – Essendon – is in the top eight for age, and they are eighth. None is in the top eight for experience.

That’s not to say that these lists aren’t capable of achieving great things in 2019, but instead that they are still some distance from hitting their high-water mark in terms of talent maturity".

Nonetheless, the expectations on us will indeed be 'heavy' and we will rise to the occasion!

Edit:  change 'Mean' to 'Median'

Yes, I meant Median.  Have gone back and edited post.  Thanks.

Lewis Final year in 2019. Let’s get the premiership and send him out in style  

As they only have 1-year deals, Maynard, Garlett, Wagner-J and Jkh all need to show improvement to stay on board.  

Garlett just needs to find his desire once again and he’s best 22.

Are you sure May will be 31 at end of season?

Not sure JJ's age is correct also.

Heh Mod can you delete my post above. Got myself confused on Lucifer's original post.

No need to delete - its a good time to clarify the player's age shown is as at the end of their contract.

 

Thanks to all for changes.  I will do them when next I update the table, which probably won't be long since the club would want to sign up a few players soon rather than later.

 Be surprised if Lewis is playing if we do as you say. He was average last year and should be worse with another year under his belt.

The big one for me on that list is Weideman.  While we are not privy to how he is feeling, I think the club has done a terrific job at developing him and getting him back to full fitness after the injuries he suffered as a junior.  Hopefully he sees this and is keen to sign a long term contract with the club, as we are now putting plenty of faith in him with the loss of Hogan.

You would be pretty confident in some of the other main players, like Melksham and Salem, that they will re-sign sometime during 2019, but Weideman is the key one for me.

Nit picking (sorry), but I think Corey Maynard has played 2 games, one in 2017 and one this year.

The AFL website is reporting that we have one rookie spot left that we are likely to fill with a SSP list player (in addition to Wagner).

 

Quote

 

Among the players in the mix could be multiple state league medallists Mick GibbonsMitch Grigg and Jye Bolton, Casey Demon Jay Lockhart, key-position prospect Hayden McLean, who trained at St Kilda, and late-blooming South Fremantle onballer Marlion Pickett.

There is also a chance clubs will keep a spot up their sleeve for next year's mid-season rookie draft, but industry sources say it is unlikely any team would enter the season one player short.

Updated for Melksham signing on till 2022.  Its great that he has signed up again as he has turned into a very valuable player, somewhat unexpected at the time he was recruited.

We still have one list spot and it looks likely that if it is filled will be in the mid season draft.  Gives the club a chance to see how potential target players go in their respective leagues before committing.

I would think the club is working on contract extensions for Salem, Weideman and ANB as we speak.

I would like to see Frost, smith and stretch  added to the contract extensions. Jones will be the most interesting.

Nice post and quite revealing. As for the Filth, it is very sad (for them) that age is creeping up on their experience base and with that, a few years  (the more the better) in the doldrums could possibly be a consideration and outcome for/of this list. The cynic in me thinks this is going to be a test for their injury management and for their list refreshment in order to be competitive.

Hurrah! This is a very prominent in my mind, too. It shows that something very good is happening.

I agree, although they might wait with Frost, there's a lot of competition for the spot he's best at.

I reckon that unless Jones is badly injured during the season then he'll be put on year by year contracts, but I'd say he's got another 2 seasons after this

Here is the update for Salem (assuming the proposed 2 year contract extension eventuates).

image.png.dc28a111e62d9798c51d6bb206db307e.png

Salem has been limited to 70 games injury and form issues so he is yet to reach that sweet spot of 100-150 games.  His best is yet to come - delightful prospect.

Would expect Weideman to sign up again but not in a hurry as he would understandably like to prove himself to improve his contract value.

The other that may take some time is Jones but in his case it may be injury issues which delay a contract.  Understandably he would be looking for several years.

A few others OOC this year maybe on their last chance if they can't break into the senior side for a regular game as we have had some good recruits in the last few years who will put pressure on those guys.

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the

    TEN MINUTES LATE by Whispering Jack

    The late Norm Smith, who played in four Melbourne premierships and coached another six, was a strong disciplinarian. Known as the Red Fox for his auburn hair and his cunning, Smith was a man of a different age to the here and now. Born during the Great War, he survived the Spanish Flu Pandemic, grew up in depression times, played mostly through the Second World War and its aftermath and coached in a period of rebuilding and recovery to a time of prosperity. Smith’s success was built on team

    SAINTS HELL IN DEES HEAVEN by GOTO

    The last of this year’s indigenous games was played in the red heart of the country and could well have determined Melbourne’s finals aspirations but it was St Kilda that had its top four hopes dashed after a nail-biting finish in Alice Springs which saw them unceremoniously marched out of the position in football heaven occupied by them for much of this season. It all came down in the end to a goal-line decision as to whether a freakish shot by Christian Petracca was touched and the goal u

    DO OR DIE by The Oracle

    Melbourne is, not for the first time, paying for lapses in matches whereby the club leaks multiple goals without answer and which usually cost the club in those all-important eight point games as it did last week against the Western Bulldogs which replaced the Demons in the AFL top eight. And this week, they come up against a team that reputedly plays in the same mode as the Bulldogs but has been able to prevail over better opponents than Melbourne. It’s not that the Demons are out of form

    GIVE THE DOGS A BONE by George on the Outer

    The winner of the game is in the top eight and the loser out. Had Melbourne won, it would have consigned the Bulldogs season to the scrapheap given their remaining fixture which still includes a bye. The Demons led at half-time but they gave the Dogs a bone which was willingly accepted — they notched 6 goals in the third quarter and dumped the Demons out of the eight. This game simply saw all the bad habits return for Melbourne players.  When they serve up dinky kicks, dinky handballs, litt

    The Melbourne Football Club should hand out an award to the person who came up with the concept of the 20 day football frenzy the football world experienced from Round 9 to the completion of Round 12 on Monday. When the AFL fixture was moved into a state of perpetual motion, things changed so quickly that it was difficult to fathom exactly what was happening to the competition but the Demons have been one of the beneficiaries to date.
